Beatrice Harrison in Queen's Hall - 3 July, 1923

from The Cello and the Nightingales- The autobiography of Beatrice Harrison, page 118:

Eugene Goossens conducted it [Delius's cello concerto] for me most beautifully but I was very nervous. It is curiously written for the cello but I think the theme of the Adagio one of the most exquisite fragments he has written.
